Here we have my guilty pleasure at Cactus Taqueria – three crispy steak tacos. I have ordered these or the crispy chicken tacos so many times that I have asked “have you tried anything else on the menu?” I guess I am a creature of habit.

This chocolate pound cake was an experiment from last summer. It turned very well and I added a dusting of powdered sugar. The next cake that I will experiment with is a chocolate tunnel cake. I have made the cake successfully once but have had a couple of failures with it as well. Stay tuned!

From the Blue Nile menu: “This is the Nile’s creation for chicken lovers. Tender chicken strips, pan-fried and simmered in our natural sauce, served with rice, fresh salad, mixed vegetables and injera (Ethiopian bread). ”

This was my first time having Ethiopian food. The injera is used to pickup the meal so no utensils were provided.

A very good chocolate milkshake at Burger Meister in San Francisco. Of course, I had this with a cheeseburger and fries. All were very good.

Spicy jambalaya at Tropix Caribbean Restaurant on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland. I had this along with the spicy cornbread and the fried calamari. After finishing most of the calamari, I could only finish half of the jambalaya. It made for a tasty lunch the next day.

Shrimp & Grits @ Blackberry Bistro, originally uploaded by in2jazz.

A very tasty breakfast of saut饤 shrimp, onions and tomatoes with lemon and green chilies over cheesy grits. I also had an order of chicken apple sausage and orange juice. Blackberry Bistro is located at 4240 Park Boulevard in the Glenview District of Oakland. It has been open since 2003 and become quite a popular spot for breakfast and lunch. The Bistro Burger is quite the bomb as well. Robert Dorsey III is the chef and owner of Blackberry Bistro. Before opening Blackberry Bistro, he was a chef for a variety of Bay Area restaurants including BayWolf. He has used his food prowess to great dishes and a wonderful environment for his restaurant. See you there soon!
Here is the recipe for this tasty treat!

An introduction…

Where do I start? Baking is just as much a part of my life as music. I usually am playing good music while baking. I think I first tried my hand at baking when I was in my teens. I had been thinking about creating a separate blog devoted to baking for a while but I could not imagine having two blogs. Not sure how often I will post over here as I do not bake every week. I can guarantee you lots of good photos and a fotoblog along the way. This clever photo was taken during the recent Christmas holiday baking season. I went through a lot of butter. I will tell you more about that real soon. Creating this blog was much easier than my first one. I dedicate this blog to my dad who passed 5 years ago on this day.
